The Generic Tree Friends are, as their name says, a couple of background characters, who usually serve as an audience watching a film, a theater play, etc. However, they were used as another types of crowds, such as a crowd of zombies, people who are at the amusement park, etc.

Character Bio

They are both used in masses when needed as large audiences or occasionally killed in masses. Generic Tree Friends are not colored the usual colors; they are usually shadowed, but their eyes, nose, and mouth can sometimes be seen. Most of them resemble bears, but they can resemble a variety of animals. Some can be anteaters, some can be moles or chipmunks or whatever.

In Splendid's SSSSSuper Squad, they appear as a blue gerbil/bear, a green cat, and a yellow dog. Only three are shown at a time, though they appear constantly throughout the episode. These Generic Tree Friends are also the only ones with different shapes.
